With the idea of imparting programming knowledge, Mr. Sandeep Jain, an IIT Roorkee alumnus started a dream, GeeksforGeeks. Whether programming excites you or you feel stifled, wondering how to prepare for interview questions or how to ace data structures and algorithms, GeeksforGeeks is a one-stop solution. With every tick of time, we are adding arrows in our quiver. From articles on various computer science subjects to programming problems for practice, from basic to premium courses, from technologies to entrance examinations, we have been building ample content with superior quality.

Phone-eating dino
But why he (probably) won't eat yours

Why does Dino eat smart phones?

Let’s just say – it’s complicated.

Don’t be afraid – Dino (probably) won’t eat your phone

For one, he’s just hungry and not only are phones very abundant in the After Phone (AP) era – nobody else is eating them. Another reason: Dino craves the chance and will do anything to get back to the geologic epoch known as Before Phone (BP). The way he sees it – the more phones he eats the greater chance he has to recreate the “pre-phones” conditions of the period during which he thrived. It was a time of Great Phonelesslness. Why else does Dino eat phones? In a word, Boogie. Dino has a evolutionary-refined sense of smell for the dreaded Boogie Phone.


What is the Boogie Phone?

Or rather who is the Boogie Phone. Let’s just say he’s always lurking. And usually closer than you think. Click here to find out more, or simply read the post below. And most of all don’t forget to listen to what Dino has to say in video above.

About Before Phones (BP)
It was a time of Great Phonelessness

Granted, it was a bizarre time.

People actually had to talk to each other face to face.

Introducing Dino the phone-eating dinosaur

And there were only three channels on the TV.

As unpleasant as that sounds, somehow it worked (although I have my doubts).

Dino is just trying to understand modern life

But how exactly did people survive (even thrive) before phones?

Here at Before Phones (BP) “Where the Dinosaurs Roam” we explore the latest discoveries about the Pre-Phone era. Our methodologies include interviews with other dinosaurs, the latest archeological finds and a range of other innovative research techniques.

Mysteries We Explore

Nothing to fear, Dino will not harm you (but he may eat your phone)

Here at Before Phones (BP), we are dedicate to …

Trying to understand the cryptic pre-phone era.

Unresolved questions include:

  • How people drove without texting?
  • What is was like to have only 24 photos to a roll?
  • How people (dinosaurs) coped with the boredom?

Our Goal

Dino interviewing Steve the Brontosaurus

The pre-phone era also had its charm (so they say).

Our goal is to understand how society worked without everyone staring at their phone all day (and night).

  • To inform, inspire and educate about the pre-phone era
  • Feature guests from the Before Phone (BP) era
  • Continuously improve our understanding of phonelessness

Dinosaurs never die
Just look around you


Too often today …

We label dinosaurs failures.

But hear me out:

Dinosaurs dominated terrestrial ecosystems for 190 million of the approximately 440 million years life has been present on earth. That’s not bad. Especially when you consider the iPhone is barely over a decade old. 1 decade = 1/10th of a century = 1/1000th of a millennium = an infinitesimal sliver of time = you get me drift.

Dinosaurs in many ways may be the biggest success story in the history of the earth. And don’t count us out just yet. Did you know that bird species outnumber mammals 2 to 1. And that’s right, you guessed it.

Dinosaurs are the ancestors to modern-day birds.

Every kingfisher and nuthatch you see has the heart of a dinosaur.

Dinosaur test
For determining if you're a dinosaur

What’s the test …

For knowing your a dinosaur?

Probably the first is just missing something you “used to do” in the Before Phone (BP) era. That would be something as simple as writing a letter, or more complex like your sense of place, or a loss of the hobbies or other good habits you used to keep.

What we can say is that you know a dinosaur when you see one.

In that respect, Buck Buckner passes the dinosaur test.

Introducing Dino
The phone-eating dino

If you thought a T-Rex was scary …

How about a phone-eating dinosaur?

Other than that one quirk, Dino the Dinosaur has a heart of gold. And the only reason he eats phones (and not berries or nuts) is that the birds and the squirrels are too fast for him to compete. It doesn’t hurt that no other animal seems to be targeting smart phones, plus the fact that they are super plentiful, and people are super tuned out when they are using them in public.

Dino may actually be doing them a favor by eating their phone.

Although that’s probably looking at the long-view.

Usually in the short term they are super freaked out.
